Wisteria florist ’Violacea Plena’
Wisteria florist ’Violacea Plena’ (Wisteria floribunda ’Violacea Plena’)
General description: Species with exceptional, full flowers in purple colour, collected in long acini form florescences which are pleasantly fragrant. It grows up to 6 - 10 m (1-3 m per year).
One of the earliest flowering varieties, it begins to bloom as early as 3-4 years after planting.
It blooms profusely in May and June.
Well-proven in the Polish climate, it is resistant to frosts, but young plants need to be covered with a straw mat, and the soil around the shoots thicken with a thick tree bark.
After winter, shorten the long end shoots so that only 2-3 buds remain on them, and in July, cut new increments above the 5th leaf.
By appropriate cutting, it is also possible to obtain a tree form that does not require supports.
